Mets | Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom could be skipped

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 11:49:21 -0700

New York Mets SP Matt Harvey could be skipped again in the rotation, but it'll depend on where the team is in the standings, according to pitching coach Dan Warthen. Harvey has thrown 160 innings this year and will be capped in the 185-190 range. Warthen also would prefer to skip SP Jacob deGrom once before the end of the season. He has thrown 163 innings in 2015 after throwing 178 2/3 frames last year.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously you would never outright dump Harvey ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) or deGrom ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) in any leagues, but them missing any further starts knocks down their fantasy value a bit to close out the year. Any rest they get should make them a stronger start on FantasyScore, though.

Mets | Jacob deGrom had food poisoning Monday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 13:13:58 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom (illness) had food poisoning Monday, Aug. 24. He is feeling better Wednesday, Aug. 26, after he received an IV Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom's ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) out-of-nowhere dud against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday night makes a little more sense knowing he was potentially pitching at less than 100%. Continue to view deGrom as a high-end pitcher in all fantasy formats, especially now that the New York offense is supplying all kinds of run support.

Mets | Jacob deGrom was under the weather

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:41:40 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom (illness) was feeling ill during his start Monday, Aug. 24. He's feeling better Tuesday, Aug. 25.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) allowed a season-high seven runs and eight hits (three home runs) in just 2 2/3 frames against the Philadelphia Phillies last night. He clearly wasn't himself, and this should help his fantasy owners breathe a little easier. Expect him to put up much better numbers his next time out.

Mets | Jacob deGrom bounced around

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 21:53:15 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed a career-high seven runs and eight hits over 2 2/3 innings in a no-decision Monday, Aug. 24, against the Philadelphia Phillies. His ERA rose from 1.98 to 2.29 as a result of the poor outing.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) killed FantasyScore players Monday, but this start is certainly an anomaly. Look for him to bounce back next time out Saturday against Boston.

Mets | Jacob deGrom continues to roll

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 21:31:51 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed one run, five hits and a walk over 7 2/3 innings in a win against the Baltimore Orioles. He also struck out six batters while lowering his ERA to 1.98, second-best in the National League.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) is 9-2 with a 1.44 ERA in 16 starts since May 11. He is a must-start FantasyScore option, even with his high price tag.

Mets | NY starters to be rested down the stretch

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 10:14:53 -0700

New York Mets starting pitchers will be given more rest in September with the return of SP Steven Matz (lat) after rosters expand on September 1. RP Logan Verrett will likely receive a spot start or two in September to allow one of the team's marquee starters to be skipped. Matz has made one rehab start for Class A St. Lucie. SP Matt Harvey has tossed 154 innings and is on pace for roughly 15 or so more than the team would like. SP Noah Syndergaard is at 135 1/3 innings between the majors and minors, and he tossed 138 innings last season. There's less urgency in shaving innings off of SP Jacob deGrom's workload. He's at 146 2/3 innings after throwing 178 2/3 innings last season.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets will go with a six-man rotation when Matz ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) returns from the DL. Less starts and less innings down the stretch will slightly devalue the Mets' marquee starters for their fantasy owners.

Mets | Jacob deGrom strikes out 10 in win

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 18:07:25 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom (11-6) allowed two hits over seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, Aug. 12, with four walks and 10 strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) had his eighth career double-digit strikeout game and his fourth this season. He will make his next start against the Baltimore Orioles Tuesday, Aug. 18, and is a must-start pitcher in FantasyScore every time he takes the mound.

Mets | NY to use spot starter soon

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 17:17:53 -0700

The New York Mets tentatively plan to use a spot starter on their next road trip, and Ps Dillon Gee and Logan Verrett are the primary candidates to receive a start. The Mets are looking for ways to slow the increasing innings totals for young SPs Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: You can ignore Gee and Verrett in all formats, since they're likely to only have the one start. This is just another reminder that the Mets' young starters will have one less start down the stretch. It also looks plausible that they'll go back to a six-man rotation when Steven Matz (lat) is ready to return around the beginning of September.

Mets | Jacob deGrom hurls quality start

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 19:21:38 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom allowed two earned runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings Friday, Aug. 7, in a no-decision against the Tampa Bay Rays. He walked none and struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: This was deGrom's ($9,500, 19.0% of cap) fifth consecutive quality start and marked just the third time in 21 starts this season where he has allowed multiple homers. He will make his next scheduled start at home against the Colorado Rockies Wednesday, Aug. 12, and is a solid starting option in FantasyScore.

Mets | Jacob deGrom has strong outing

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 00:10:20 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom had eight strikeouts and yielded just two hits, lowering his ERA to 2.05, as the Mets beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-2 on Sunday, July 26. DeGrom did not get the decision.

Fantasy Tip: DeGrom ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) has been a solid producer for the Mets, and his ERA is getting lower with each game. He is a rock-solid FantasyScore player and should be started every time.
